Just a little of everything HR

What Minister Mentor Lee talked about..

leave a comment »

Like him or not, Minister Mentor Lee Kwan Yew has managed to develop Singapore into a ‘knowledge economy’ in the 60’s even before the catchphrase even existed.But the discussion encompassed a little bit of everything – Singapore’s sociopolitical situation in the 60’s, history, politics, his views on leadership and the most important thing: human capital.

Some points which MM Lee covered in the discussion at the Singapore Human Capital Summit includes:

  • The economic downturn and how long the recession might last
  • The rising competition between Chindia and Singapore, and the competitive advantages of Singapore
  • European history (really!)
  • Foreign talent and why Singapore needs it
